Naomi Stewart, cry-santhemum neckpieces, 2010, sterling silver
The latest thing to come off my bench was a pair of small sterling silver earrings made on commission (my first “real” commission!). Over the last few months I have been working on a range of delicate hand-carved and cast sterling silver pieces, and the earrings were to accompany a blackened silver necklace I had made previously.
Favorite earrings: Unknown maker, ceramic, sterling silver
Today I am wearing a pair of earrings borrowed from my darling older sister. They are fairly simple oval drops: white ceramic (I think), with beautiful red detailing that is reminiscent of Japanese kimono fabric. I adore these earrings, and am not sure whether my sister will ever get them back!
Thanks Naomi, and good luck with your show 'Cast Off' which opens next week.
